Sustainable Fundraising Collection News

We hope you're all saving your Box Tops for Education, Labels for Education, and Tyson Project A+ Labels!

This year, learning communities will be competing to collect the most BoxTops and Labels each trimester, so please keep an eye out for those products when planning your shopping trips, and make sure to send them to school with your student.  Students should bring any collected labels to their homeroom teachers.

Please check out these websites for more information.  
Remember, there are also lots of ways to earn online through bonus offers, games, and online shopping, and that turns into money for St. Albans City School!

Thanks for your support!
